I look forward to seeing the new James and Mike Mondays every single week!
April 7, 2014 at 12:14 am
never heard of that
April 7, 2014 at 12:18 am
dude where do you hear of and find games and systems likr these?
April 7, 2014 at 9:03 pm
I know, right??? What the heck is an Ex-box one???
April 10, 2014 at 2:13 am
A box that makes fun ? Than better call this crap X-BoxNone ^^
Sorry but cant understand why people get this abomination …….for 500€ it should can fly….well it can …”out the window” 😉
April 11, 2014 at 4:03 pm
What’re you guys like, seven?
April 7, 2014 at 12:21 am
now i wanna see “Is it fucking real?” get made XD i’d love to hear your takes on those kind of subjects
April 7, 2014 at 6:07 pm
I’d love to see that too…AFTER the AVGN movie!!! <3
April 7, 2014 at 12:23 am
you know ive always wondered since the nerd and james are seperate people, what is the nerds name? James has always said the nerd is just a character, but is avgn’s name james rolfe too? just curious, maybe its a dumb question
April 7, 2014 at 1:40 am
I think the character is just “The Nerd” or “The Fucking Nerd”. Several of his guessed just call him that Nerd, and nothing else. So I think his name is just “The Angry Video Game Nerd” or just Nerd for short.

Reproductions of prototype games for the NES are not the same as homebrew. A homebrew game is completely written from scratch in assembly language, while a reproduction game is just a finished game burned onto a cartridge.
April 7, 2014 at 1:51 am
What’s your point… What they were saying is getting a copy of something that was never officially printed and released.
April 7, 2014 at 9:05 am
Hey James and Mike, long time watcher, first time poster here! Here’s a suggestion for James and Mike Mondays…Zombies Ate My Neighbors! I can see you guys making a hilarious vid for that game!
April 7, 2014 at 12:28 am
This is a weird console. I think if it was marketed than it would have had a bigger impact. I see it as an 80s cd-i. That is if it plays vhs tapes.
April 7, 2014 at 12:42 am
I love how you used Inverse Phase’s 8-Bit cover of Sanctified by Nine Inch Nails XD Good play!
April 7, 2014 at 12:55 am
“Hey what’s this?”
“Yeah, but what’s on it?”
“Oh that’s Xbox One. The latest and greatest, newest generation of video game hardware.”
“Oh…” (awkward pause) “Let’s go back to playing this 30 year old piece of shit!” 😀
April 7, 2014 at 1:22 am
IS IT ME OR DOES THIS VIDEO PLAYER JUST SUCK DICK FOR CONDOMS?? THE MONDAY VIDEOS ARE GOOD BUT DAMN…THIS SHIT IS LIKE GAMESPOT VIDEOS THEM SHITS NEVER WORK RIGHT…PRESS 7 IF YOU AGREE!!
April 12, 2014 at 2:39 am
Lol Gamespot videos, seriously worthless.
April 7, 2014 at 1:35 am
I’m sure I played something like this. I can’t remember the name, but the idea was the same. It was all one story, and it was about freedom fighters against an army of machines. I remember it because of how the main bad guy would “digitize” people into machines. All in glorious 80s filming!
Anyways, it was an attempt to make a line of toys, using this system. Instead of a gun and machine, everything was done with the toy it’s self. I remember my friend having some cool looking plans that you pointed at the TV. At the end of the program you would see how many points you managed to help the good guys win.
Now it’s going to bug me till I remember the name …
April 7, 2014 at 1:44 am
Captain Power: and the Soldiers of the Future
For anyone who wants to see more of stuff like this!
April 7, 2014 at 11:41 pm
Oh looks like you already figured it out, stupid page breaks. Lol.
April 7, 2014 at 11:38 pm
I think you’re thinking of the toy line for Captain Power and the soldiers of the future. I actually still have the main ship and the training video that came with it. I always remember playing with the video but I could never figure out when the actual show was on, so I never actually got to play along with any of the episodes.
April 8, 2014 at 9:16 pm
Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future
April 7, 2014 at 1:46 am
two things… 1) you should spend an hour or two once you are done with the avgn movie and add some white flashing things for you to shoot for when you release it on VHS.
2) I want to see a video where Mike explains the xbox one to james.
Did they have you shoot a hostage at 11:33???
April 7, 2014 at 2:05 am
yo Mike, Humans and Bigfoot can have a shared ancestor instead of coming from one another. Both Humans and Bigfoot could have evolved from another animal altogether.
but like, yeah who knows. it’s bigfoot. they did compete with people in Europe. check out Quest for Fire to see sweet Human vs Bigfoot action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yb6NDww25Yo
pretty great episode!
April 7, 2014 at 2:09 am
Hah! I never had the system, but my grandma bought the tapes for me at the Dyess Air Force BX back in like 1993 because they were going for like fifty cents apiece. I had the ghost one and the submarine one. Funny thing is they actually work with the Captain Power vehicles because they used the same types of flashing light.
April 7, 2014 at 2:18 am
James looks horrified the XBox is watching him ^^
April 7, 2014 at 2:51 am
I have that same space mountain shirt
April 7, 2014 at 3:02 am
It was neat to see the Xbox One in the background; that 4K TV looks gorgeous. Do you have a PS4 as well, Mike? 🙂
It was also really interesting to hear both’ve your opinions on certain things you may or may not believe exist. I’ve always wondered what you guys thought of stuff like that – especially ghosts. There could be a pretty sweet ‘Top 10’ type vided where you guys rank the most believable, to the most unbelievable beings often found in horror movies.
Mike singing the Full House theme song also gave me another idea for a ‘Top 10’ video, such as “Top 10 sitcom theme songs from the 80s and 90s”.
April 7, 2014 at 3:10 am
Nice semi ad for the Xbone, you got me
April 7, 2014 at 3:13 am
That was a great vid ^o^
April 7, 2014 at 3:34 am
UFO’s are real by virtual of…you know, what a UFO actually is.
If I throw a pen past your head and you don’t know what it was, guess what? You just saw a UFO
April 7, 2014 at 3:35 am
*virtue not virtual
April 7, 2014 at 3:46 am
You could probably get this to work on a flat screen TV but you’d need a plasma TV.
April 7, 2014 at 3:59 am
James face after he heard it’s Xbox 1 XDDD
April 7, 2014 at 4:57 am
Looks to me like Microsoft just paid some money for a mention in a nerd video… This video seemed like one big Xboxone commercial, sitting in front of that screen, “casually” mentioning it two times, this sucks man.
April 8, 2014 at 1:30 am
And Here I thought I was just crazy…does suck man…
April 9, 2014 at 1:03 am
The screen rotation on the xbox one changes throughout the video too. It does seem like they were paid to showcase it, even if it was just a mention with it in the background.
While yes it does suck to see what was pretty much an xbox one ad in a cinemassacre video, but i don’t really mind that much. I am still never buying an xbox one, not even for the future halo games. 343 has screwed up that franchise.
If it was an ad, they were more than likely paid, which you can’t blame them for taking. I’d take it. Especially if i worked as hard as James does on his videos and raising a kid, while making a movie.
April 12, 2014 at 2:41 am
Yeah, that’s exactly what happened. Give me a fucking break.
April 7, 2014 at 5:19 am
It’s not that people evolved from apes (the species of apes that exist today didn’t exist back then), that’s an inaccurate simplification. It’s more that today’s apes and men have the same biological ancestors, who then evolved into many different species, some of them survived and evolved into man and some evolved into primates and monkeys. We are more closely related to primates than monkeys of course, it’s kinda like the difference between having the same great granddad and having the same great great great great granddad with someone (that too is a very simplified analogy but it’s closer to the truth than saying man evolved from apes).
April 7, 2014 at 7:11 am
None of them actually said that any of the apes that exist today are the same as the ones we evolved from. They didn’t actually say that there are any of the original apes left in our world. They might as well have meant that Bigfoot/the Yeti/the Sasquatch is another species that evolved from that original species.
April 7, 2014 at 5:26 am
Nice TV there in the back.
April 7, 2014 at 6:08 am
LOL are you guys trying to get money from microsoft by showing off the xbone?
April 12, 2014 at 2:42 am
I hate idiots like you.
April 7, 2014 at 6:13 am
Speaking of the Turbo-Grafx16, you should do an episode on a game like Military Madness or something.
April 7, 2014 at 7:04 am
LOL! Blatant Xbox One advertising. With all the controversy with Let’s Players on YouTube admitting to getting paid by MS to praise their products, MS had to look elsewhere.
April 7, 2014 at 7:09 am
04:50 Did I just see a disembodied Michalangelo, or any of the other Turtles?!
8:54 “Written by Mitchell Barry”… how the hell do you write something like this?!
April 7, 2014 at 7:10 am
Brings back memories of Captain Power!
April 7, 2014 at 7:34 am
Did you guys get paid by Microsoft to have that XBox One Background? If this is the case, it feel very lame! Are you cash whores or what?
April 7, 2014 at 10:21 am
They were showing that it’s not that great. Didn’t you get that in the end where James is like, “So, you wanna play the Xbox One?” and Mike goes, “Nah”.
They were passing up the shiny new toy to play with their old ones.
April 7, 2014 at 12:39 pm
SYPH – exactly. Thanks
April 7, 2014 at 7:49 am
Can’t tell if Microsoft is paying James to advertise the Xbox One (which I love – I’m an Xbox fan, mostly) or if James is amazed by new gaming systems, that aren’t the SNES. Anyway, great video 😀
April 7, 2014 at 11:34 am
It was a joke. We were playing the ActionMax on an old TV, with our backs to a brand new TV with a brand new console (the Xbox One).
April 7, 2014 at 8:12 pm
Probably not the best idea for a joke with all the controversy surrounding MS and Let’s Players
April 17, 2014 at 5:08 pm
Oh sorry, I didn’t get it when I watched it. Shit, now I feel bad for sounding like an ass.
April 7, 2014 at 11:42 am
They are at Mike’s place. They are showing it just for the fun of owning a XboxOne (a new console) and choosing to play something so old like the Action Max. I find it hilarious also XD
You guys should find yourself an Amiga CD32 for James & Mike Mondays
April 7, 2014 at 7:54 am
You guys totally have to make one of these vhs games. Heck, get hold of a second action max and have a 2 player game
April 7, 2014 at 8:27 am
Haha I absolutely love that xbox reference x) You might consider it a joke but I feel it’s a bit true, some of these old cheesy things can be much more interesting than whatever is on Xbone right now.
April 7, 2014 at 8:42 am
Am I hearing an 8-bit version of Nine Inch Nails’ “Sanctified” ??
April 7, 2014 at 9:16 am
I think it totally is…I am hearing it too.
April 7, 2014 at 8:45 am
James, you should do the videos on bigfoot and all the others you talked about after the AVGN movie is over.
Now James and Mike, I want to introduce to the Theory of Evolution, and just how true this theory really is. Enjoy. 🙂
April 7, 2014 at 9:03 am
@1:10, when James says he showed it in an AVGN intro, then the Nintendo Zapper and Duck Hunt are shown. Knowing that Mike edits the J&M videos, I think he got that wrong. James actually showed Action Max in the intro to episode Day Dreaming Davey. I know this goes to show the new screen thing in general, but I think James was talking specifically about Action Max and how it was aknowledged in the AVGN series, but wasn’t worth a review.
April 7, 2014 at 9:06 am
I would really enjoy to see “Is it fucking real?”.
April 7, 2014 at 9:07 am
Hey James and Mike, long time watcher, first time poster here with a suggestion for James and Mike Mondays…Zombies Ate My Neighbors! I can see you guys making a hilarious vid for this game!
April 7, 2014 at 9:15 am
Please tell me I am not the only one that hears an 8bit version of Sanctified by Nine Inch Nails in the background.
James, I would TOTALLY watch ‘Is It Fuckin’ Real’ 😀 and hearing you guys talk about paranormal stuff it pretty neat. Do more of that! Kinda’ makes me want more Jersey Odysseys…
April 7, 2014 at 9:52 am
I think even Garfield hates Mondays less now because of James & Mike Mondays. Oh and great video like always.
April 7, 2014 at 10:36 am
I love Mondays.
and this may be completely pathetic, but I think I could listen to you guys debate about the existence of ghosts, bigfoot, ufos, aliens, and the loch ness monster for hours on end. haha
April 7, 2014 at 10:44 am
Is anyone else having problems with this video player? Every time I use this video player it always stutters.
April 7, 2014 at 11:43 am
To hell with newer gens (especially that one). I want more of those oldies! ^^
April 7, 2014 at 11:45 am
Why don’t you guys play Killer Instinct on Xbone?
April 7, 2014 at 11:52 am
Probably shouldn’t take on something like “is it real?” if you haven’t brushed up on your evolution lately
April 7, 2014 at 12:08 pm
I’ll bet the reason the zapper doesn’t work on James’ TV doesn’t have to do with the TV itself (it looks like a standard CRT that just has a flat surface, not an actual LCD) is that the NES passes thru a DVD recorder before it reaches the TV. Recorders like those tend to slightly delay the timing by a few milliseconds. Try hooking it up directly to the TV, as light guns need precision “dead-on balls accurate” timing.
April 7, 2014 at 12:15 pm
It’s only been a week but I missed you guys
April 7, 2014 at 12:23 pm
I really love u two guys, but that was one of the worst Product placement ive ever seen. I wouldn´t really mind if you just had it running in the background like that and just said that the Xbox one i great. But try to hide the fact that this was Product placement just say it out loud, otherwise it just seems so unaturall 😉 And again i love u guys and i don´t mind if you do a Little advertisement, it´s ok.
Love from Sweden!
April 7, 2014 at 12:26 pm
A bit of clumsy Writing, this was what i should have wrote 😉
*Dont try to hide the fact that this was Product placement, just say it out loud, otherwise it just seems so unaturall.
April 12, 2014 at 2:45 am
You’re a dipshit.
April 7, 2014 at 12:27 pm
Love the XBone in the background and how James is puzzled by it 🙂
Was this filmed when the next gen consoles were still fresh?
April 7, 2014 at 12:43 pm
We evolved from the same creature our monkey cousins did, yes. Not monkeys per se. As for UFOs, or more specifically aliens, you’re absolutely right, Mike. There are, as estimated, between 100 and 200 fucking BILLION galaxies (not solar systems, GALAXIES) in the universe. There is no chance in hell there isn’t another inhabited planet out there. Zero. In fact, it’s more likely that the number of inhabited planets is to us unfathomably large, and there might actually be a billion other species out there who have thought (or will think) about this very thing. Puts things into perspective… and almost freaks me out in the process.
April 7, 2014 at 12:44 pm
Is it me, or do I hear NIN’s “Sanctified” bass line in the background of that game?
April 7, 2014 at 1:14 pm
Good video James and Mike
April 7, 2014 at 1:35 pm
ok everyone add mike on xbox live.
April 7, 2014 at 2:18 pm
That’s exactly what I thought when his gamertag showed up.
April 7, 2014 at 2:00 pm
Action Max has less exclusives than Wii U but still more than XBO.
I’ll go by Brentalfloss words here: “don’t ever buy a console at launch, they’re gonna get you!”
Waited for my Wii U, now there’s a line-up to appreciate and some great exclusive worth waiting for, 3rd time playing The Wonderful 101 at the 3rd level of difficulty because every difficult level has hidden playable characters to use, it’s so great. I don’t talk about the other consoles because i don’t own them so it would be silly to speculate without having experienced them.
After the Wii Remote and games like Umbrella Chronicles, Darkside Chronicles and Overkill i don’t think i can go back to another way of playing Light Gun games outside Nintendo’s platforms. Outside of any Arcade i can’t find myself playing that ridiculous Time Crisis 4 on the PS3, it works so bad compared to Wii and Wii U. Even FPS and TPS, outside of a PC experience, it’s just better to aim, especially now with the Wii Motion Plus, on Nintendo consoles. It takes a little bit of practice but when you get how sensible it is, it get greatly rewarding. Every kind of limb shot is a blast.
April 7, 2014 at 2:03 pm
Good lord. That exchange between you two about the TV made me think you were setting up some joke or skit.
“What’s this, by the way?”
“Oh, my TV.”
“Yeah, but, what’s this?”
“Oh, it’s Xbox One.”
I kept waiting for a punchline or something, but you dropped it entirely, which I think actually made it funnier than saying a real joke, lol.
April 7, 2014 at 2:35 pm
Who wants to play a shitty Xbox One when you’ve got Action Max? ;D
April 7, 2014 at 4:53 pm
Fascinating but Highly Illogical 😀
April 7, 2014 at 2:49 pm
It feels surreal watching you and Eminem at the same time
April 7, 2014 at 2:57 pm
Listening to you guys talk about ghosts and Bigfoot, it seemed like you really haven’t done much looking into the subject. I don’t know if you listen to podcasts, but if so, I’d recommend MonsterTalk, which talks about cryptozoological and paranormal subjects from a scientific perspective.
April 7, 2014 at 3:25 pm
Ive heard of this mad scientists contraption.
I found it hilarious at the end when neither of you cared to play the xbox one.
Heres an idea, and although this may be stepping out of your comfort zone, it would be cool to hear your take on the 8th gen consoles.
April 7, 2014 at 3:51 pm
Play the new Killer Instinct, now that would be hype!!!
April 7, 2014 at 4:29 pm
Both theme songs were sung by Jesse Frederick, they all sound alike to me as well.. but I don’t like Full House. I LOVED watching Twilight Zone as a kid, and still do. You two keep on being awesome, love ya guys.
What’s next, “Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future” Come on I know Mike has the toys somewhere. Great episode guys.
April 7, 2014 at 4:41 pm
If I had this cons…uhm..thing back in the salad days of my youth, I would have been soooo happy.
Well, at least until I´d found out, that it doesn´t really work that well.
But it´s a nice curiosity! ^^
April 7, 2014 at 4:55 pm
OMG, is that Hooverphonic I hear?!?! Is that in the game????
April 7, 2014 at 5:09 pm
Oh wait NiN?…
April 7, 2014 at 5:10 pm
Oh, nevermind. NiN.
April 7, 2014 at 5:06 pm
Fucking finally! You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you guys to make a video on this thing! Thank you!
April 7, 2014 at 5:08 pm
James and Mike, I love your videos but the new media player is absolutely horrific. Go back to the old one!
April 7, 2014 at 6:00 pm
What’s wrong with it? it works fine for me..
April 7, 2014 at 6:16 pm
i’m digging the 8-bit nine inch nails music
April 7, 2014 at 6:36 pm
Uhhh…I really doubt that you were supposed to be shooting the innocent people. Did anyone even check to see if the score was actually going down after shooting the woman in the stomach?
April 7, 2014 at 6:37 pm
I’m 30 years old. When I was in school, kids would constantly refer to their game cartridges as “tapes,” and that would always infuriate me. They would also swear that if you played Mortal Kombat II for long enough you’d get to see naked fatalities, and this one time they played Sonic in juuuuust the right way that Tails’ head exploded. Kids are dumb.
Anyhow, it’s neat to see a game system where the “tape” misnomer is actually correct.
April 7, 2014 at 6:57 pm
OMG, Does anybody else here a NIN Pretty Hate Machine song on the first game, LOL, did Trent take a music from this machine, or did He make music for the machine????
